, trying to think of -- the one that leaps to mind would be when the doj, the department of justice was involved when the d.a. recused himself of a couple. so, there are circumstances where they may, they may get involved or step in. or, for example, we had a postal inspector that was involved in the ois in the same county. but [speaker not understood], that's simply where there may be a jurisdictional issue. >> and i can jump in, my fellow commissioner. if there is an issue of the conflict, the importance of the independence of the investigation. so, if there is a suggestion there is conflict within the d.a., the department of justice in the state can investigate except for budget cuts. it still is more difficult and they tend to do it in smaller police departments that don't have any ability to do that themselves, so. >> one more question. similar to the question officer loft us asked about, whether they're out of policy finding have been for the d.a., do you know just in recent history have they ever charged for an ois -- * >> charge an officer? >> um-hm. >> not -- just having review
